    Default What phone did you use before you got a smartphone?

    I used an LG Rumor before I got an HTC Hero with an upgrade. The rumor was sick at the time because it was a side sliding keyboard. I remember when I got the hero I hated the lack of a QWERTY keyboard (I wasn't used to capacitive touch screens at the time and I text a LOT).

    Started with a smartphone. In all fairness, I didn't get one until I reached first year of uni.

    haha some of us that are in our late twenties grew up seeing our parents use the starTAC and not being able to use it (you'll break the damn thing!)

    I remember being in twelfth grade in 2003 and laughing because a girl was sending something called text messages from her phone

    Before I got a smartphone I used... an iPhone!!!

    Seriously, I had some LG flip phones, Nextel phones (Motorola), Nokia, HTC, Blackberry, and yes, even an iPhone, etc...

    However, I consider that my smartphone era begun with my beloved Palm Prē!

    I consider the original iPhone to be the start of "modern" smartphones because it's really what brought them from enterprise and business users to everyday consumers. You can't deny that Apple really pioneered bringing the mobile web and the full web together with much more fluent applications for everyday use. I remember thinking in the back of my mind when I first saw the iPhone at the age of 21 I thought the same thing that I did when I saw texting at the age of 17 "why in the world would I need my phone to be a computer?" technological progression has been astounding in the past 15 years.

    Nice phone and made the Razr look like plastic junk. Wish Samsung used materials like that still.

    I'm not sure if I should classify those monochrome and color display Blackberry and Palm phones as smarthones- if so then I was using Motorola flips before that with the big fat battery and retractable antenna throughout the mid-late 90's, first phone was that damn Motorola bag phone and I still have it.

    I had an LG Dare just before my first Android phone. It even did the 120fps video that you could play back in slow mo like the 5s.

    If the original iPhone is called smartphone then yes! That Blackberry was a smartphone!

    Had a moto krazr K1M, first smartphone was an iPhone 3G. Upgraded to iPhone 4 and later ran with a blackberry for 6 months and got introduced to the galaxy s2. From then on I've used an s3 and now on an s4. You can say I had a fairshare of multiple mobile OS experience lol

    I did, it was just three phones before my first smartphone. The thread title suggests the OP was just looking for one.

    My last dumb phone was a Razr V3m, the standard by which all phones' sleekness should be judged.

    For me it was my dad's bag phone. Had to pry it out of his hands when they went all-digital. That thing was a beast, but it better reception than any other device I've seen to this day. He worked in a forestry-related field, so signal 20 miles outside a small town in the mountains was pretty important.

    IIRC, the radios in them were like 3-5 times as strong as mobile phones.
